Barry Geraghty made an early visit to the Cheltenham Festival winners' enclosure today when landing the feature Champion Hurdle.

The Drumree man was on board the Nicky Henderson-trained Buveur D'air which was winning the big opening day race for the second year in-a-row.

Geraghty missed last year's Festival due to injury.

This time around 2017 Buveur D'air won the race impressively from the Willie Mullins-trained Melon in second and the Gordon Elliott-trained Mick Jazz in third place.
